About this trip idea

Allow 3 days.

If your idea of the perfect vacation includes gambling, golf and delicious dining – you need to visit Southern Indiana.

Las Vegas fun minus the plane fare
Start your trip in Evansville and make sure you wear your gambling shoes. Casino Aztar  has slots in all denominations, the latest video poker machines and 50 gaming tables to entertain you. The action doesn’t stop in the gaming room – there’s live entertainment seven nights a week and a nightclub on-site. Casino Aztar takes care of your stomach, too, with eight different dining options from casual food to gourmet dinners. When you’re ready to call it a night you’re just steps away from deluxe riverfront accommodations in your choice of two hotels – the ultra-convenient Casino Aztar Hotel or the more luxurious Le Merigot Hotel .

Stay and play at the Horseshoe
In Elizabeth , the Horseshoe Casino and Hotel has all the action you crave and all the convenience you want. More than 100 gaming tables and 2,000 slot machines to satisfy; and a huge sports bar, live entertainment and regularly scheduled shows that will amuse you. Buffet, steakhouse, ice cream parlor and more will feed your appetite. Then allow the 500-room hotel complete with fitness center and indoor pool to rejuvenate you.

Horseshoe also offers Golf at Chariot Run just a short drive from the resort. Featuring bent grass greens, trees and lakes, this course will challenge any level of golfer.

Looking for more golf? Then drive to French Lick to play their spectacular courses.

At French Lick hit the links, then the tables
The French Lick Resort offers three golf courses nestled amongst its rolling hills and forest covered landscape. Play as many holes as you can handle at the Pete Dye Indiana Golf Course, site of the 2010 PGA Professionals National Championship, the Donald Ross Indiana Golf Course, originally designed in 1917, and the Tom Bendelow Valley Links.

The French Lick Casino has a 51,000-square-foot Vegas-style gaming facility with soaring 27-foot ceilings – including a 9,500-square-foot non-smoking gaming area. Inside you’ll find 41 table games, more than 1,300 slot machines, high-limit gaming area, two dining options and live music most weekends. It’s a great way to finish off your day on the links.
